A novel high-performance graphene fabrication method

Researchers from the CSIC and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2-BIST) have recently developed a novel electrochemical reactor and procedure to fabricate graphene. This method has been tested as a prototype and shows high performance and fine tuning of the graphene oxidation. Graphene producers are being sought to collaborate and/or exploit the existing know-how through a patent license agreement.

Sustainable coating to increase magnesium alloys’ corrosion resistance

A multidisciplinary team of the CSIC has developed a sustainable and biocompatible coating for magnesium alloys that improves its resistance to corrosion, but also allows to have a progressive and controlled corrosion. The coating adheres perfectly to the substrate and has a high density, which multiplies its applications in this type of metal alloys.
